There are times in life where we really want comfort food. That warm creamy and starchy taste that gives you a happy feeling inside. I tend to avoid making a ton of these fabulous meals due to their ability to put me into a food coma. However, I have been known to consume them on occasion.

The recipe I came up with is vegan tempeh stroganoff. I cooked up some gluten free pasta to put the stoganoff on and added a side of green peas. A salad would be a great option as well.

This recipe is creamy with a slightly nutty/meaty taste from the tempeh and sauce. Combined with the pasta, it creates the perfect comfort food for that occasion.

Enjoy.

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot, cook pasta for 8-10 minutes or until desired texture. Drain and set aside.
  • Break tempeh up into thirds and soak in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. (Do this while pasta is cooking.)
  • In a large skillet melt butter and saute onion over medium heat until they are transparent in color.
  • Add tempeh and season salt and cook for 2 mintues or until tempeh is brown.
  • Next, add vegetable broth, start with 2 tablespoons. Add spinach and stir into the tempeh mixture. Place lid on Skillet/pan and keep stiring occasionally until the spinach is fully reduced.
  • Reduce heat to simmer and add the sour cream, mustard, garlic powder and nutritional yeast. Mix well.
